Listen :: Hoops share upcoming debut album single 'Rules' and head to UK in May

Words: Sam Geary

Bloomington, Indiana four-piece Hoops follow last summer’s debut EP with first album, 'Routines', out May 5 via Fat Possum. As an early taster the band share first single, 'Rules'.

Additionally, Hoops will be visiting the UK, following appearances at SXSW, Noise Pop Festival and Savannah Stopover. More dates to be announced soon.

The band have developed a knack of crafting melodic songs, built around power-pop chords, complex drum patterns, and rock-anthem sentiments that hide some tellingly dark thoughts. Three of the four members write and sing, each a frontman and a sideman simultaneously. During a live show, the bandmates can be seen frequently swapping instruments and positions on stage - which you can see for yourself at the following dates this spring.

02 Glasgow, The Hug and Pint
03 Leeds, Headrow House
04 Manchester, Soup Kitchen
07 Birmingham, Hare & Hounds
08 Bristol, The Louisiana
09 Brighton, Green Door Store
10 London, The Lexington
